Journalism and Media Communications

This fall, Journalism and Media Communications professor Gretchen Thum and JCCC Journalism students partnered with other area students, professors and industry professionals in a project designed to enhance students’ media literacy.  The goal was to teach students how to be sophisticated consumers of media, and how to tell the difference between real news and so-called “fake news.”
Throughout the fall semester, students attended virtual workshops and seminars, evaluated different media reports of current events, and wrote multiple papers.  The culmination of the project was the production of a media literacy magazine, written entirely by students from four different institutions.  Six JCCC journalism students had their work published, and one participated as a panelist in a virtual presentation of the semester’s work.
